Facilities and Technology

The Electronic Media Communications Department is located on the first floor of the Whitney Applied Technology Center, one of the newest building on campus.

Classes are taught in state-of-the-art production facilities. These include a multi-workstation non-linear digital video editing and production lab, a multi-workstation digital audio production and editing lab and a professional television studio outfitted with equipment from such leading manufacturers as Sony, Ross Video, and Chyron.

Our studio equipment is the same you'll find at area television stations and networks. For example, you'll learn to operate the same television graphics generator that local television stations and national networks use for their telecasts. And we operate our audio production facilities and Internet radio station with the same software that's used by radio stations throughout Central New York. In addition to our digital classroom labs, we also have eight individual audio and video editing suites.

The EMC Department also houses an audio and video field equipment sign-out center where students enrolled in EMC production courses may reserve equipment for their on-location audio and video production assignments.” The field equipment includes professional digital video cameras, tripods, portable lighting kits, digital audio recorders and microphones.
